Assessment and Management of Plant Invasions

1997
Resource managers, biologists, and all those involved in plant communities must consider ecological interactions when assessing both the effects of plant invasion and the long-term effects of management. Sections of the book cover human perceptions of invading plants, assessment of ecological interactions, direct management, and regulation and advocacy. It also includes an appendix with descriptive data for many of the worst weeds.

Biological Control of Invasive Plants in the Eastern United States

2002
The purpose of this book is to provide a reference guide for field workers and land managers concerning the historical and current status of the biological control of invasive plant species in the eastern United States. Weeds associated with lakes, ponds and rivers (Section I); wetlands (Section II); prairies and grasslands (Section III); old fields and pastures (Section IV); and forests (Section V) are discussed, by authors who are leaders in research on biological control of the plant species they discuss. Each chapter compiles published articles, unpublished reports and personal experiences of the authors, and provides the most up-to-date and accurate information concerning biological control of each invasive plant species.

Invasive Plant Atlas of New England

The Invasive Plant Atlas of New England’s (IPANE) mission is to create a comprehensive web-accessible database of invasive and potentially invasive plants in New England that will be continually updated by a network of professionals and trained volunteers. The database will facilitate education and research that will lead to a greater understanding of invasive plant ecology and support informed conservation management. An important focus of the project is the early detection of, and rapid response to, new invasions.
